Slipknot’s Sid Wilson Discusses Undergoing Treatment For Meniscus Tears In His Knees

During a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie, Slipknot’s Sid Wilson revealed that he has been suffering from meniscus tears in his knees. The DJ recently received treatment for the injuries in Los Angeles.

Wilson said the following [via Loudwire]:

“…Just recently I’ve been making trips to Los Angeles and getting treatment on my knees. My knees have gotten very degenerative with over the years from all of the dancing and jumping off of high objects and landing on my feet — all of that [stuff] people are familiar with.

I have a meniscus tear in my left knee and a multi-angular meniscus tear in my right knee, which means it’s like spider web tears. So there’s several tears going in all different directions. And I started doing what’s called a Regenicin treatment, which is usually done by the same people who do stem cell treatment.

What they do is take my blood and then they take the blood cells, activate them into repair mode and then inject them back into the joint where the problem is happening. It’s just really long needles and they go all the way into the center of my knee when they inject this. I’m on my second stage of the treatment now and when I go back to Los Angeles here in about a week or so, I’m going to have three more treatments done. There’s a lot of physio that happens with that too. I’m a being rebuilt like the bionic man.”
